Good Ideas


Good Ideas sometimes won't leave me alone until I do what they want. These graduated triangles have been bothering me for quite some time now. I've finally put them into fabric and hopefully that will make them hush.

The triangles started all the same size.



Then they were cropped.


And now I can relax.


I haven't been blogging much so it probably seems like I'm relaxing left and right but no, not so! See, I  keep letting these Good Ideas in my head to sit down and have some tea and then I feel like I know them and then I feel compelled to bring them into reality, because I don't know if anyone else will and wouldn't it be so sad if they never got to play in the real world?

And that's why I fell off the face of the interwebs. Because in the matter of spreading Good Ideas I can either blog or write a book and for the last couple of months it was the other one! No one is happier than my family that this book has gone to live with C&T Publishing so that they can work their magic and I can act like a human being again.  The book will be out in January. As soon as there's a title and a cover I will tell you more, I can hardly wait!

Feels good to be back here. Happy spring everyone!
